Ceramics Program in Studio Arts
The ceramics program offers a diverse approach to the materials and processes involved in the production of ceramic art. Emphasis ranges from function and "the vessel" to sculpture and installation based work. Students in the program will gain an understanding of the technical concerns involved in ceramic production such as clay/glaze formulation and mold making, while simultaneously developing the critical thought and historical understanding necessary to apply those processes to finished works.
The graduate program in ceramics is a three-year program that provides studio space, open access to materials and facilities and the potential for gaining teaching experience. Students select faculty members from throughout the department to work with, allowing for an interdisciplinary program to be built meeting the demands of each individual student. The use of other materials is strongly encouraged in the program, and students have easy access to the other studios and equipment in the 3-D area.
